Wichita Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR) hearing rescheduled to Dec 11, scope of hearing narrowed

On September 4, GMD 2 filed a motion requesting additional time to prepare for the hearing. This precipitated a series of additional filings by the parties and additional pre-hearing conferences calls.  On Sept. 20, the City of Wichita requested their new applications be withdrawn.

After discussion at the September 26 pre-hearing conference, it was agreed the hearing would be postponed to December 11 and the scope of the hearing would be narrowed, dropping the consideration of the City’s withdrawn new applications.

Thus, the public hearing in the matter of Wichita’s proposed changes to Phase II of its ASR project will be held on December 11, 2018, starting at 9:00 a.m. at American Ag Credit, located at 4105 North Ridge Road, Wichita, Kansas, 67205, to be continued on December 12 if needed.
